Is anyone adding snails to their system on purpose? I would think the mystery snails would help with the algae growth. There should be plenty of food for several in the fish tank.

Bob, I have no experience with snails in an aquaponics system, but have had them in various aquarium tanks. I used the larger barrel snails and about six months in realized I had way more than I started with! They ended up clogging the lines, filter and got ground up by the pumps. They did cut down on the algae in the tank, but there was no way to control the population and became too much of a good thing. --David
